Atlanta City Councilmember Alex Wan (District 6) will host a public safety forum on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the YMCA on North Highland Avenue to discuss recent criminal activity in and around Midtown.
The meeting follows an armed robbery and police shootout on Oct. 26 in the heart of the Midtown residential neighborhood. The robbery occurred near the intersection of 8th and Myrtle streets.
Joining Wan, the only openly gay council member, will be Atlanta Police Department Zone 6 Commander Major John Dalton and Zone 2 Commander Major Robert Browning.
The forum will offer citizens a chance to engage the Atlanta Police Department in an effort to find ways of working with the department to reduce crime in the Midtown neighborhoods as the holidays approach.
